He only returned to rowing three months before the Antwerp Olympics, but partnered the Federschmidt brothers, [Erich] and [Franz], and [Ken Myers] to a silver medal in the four. Klose later worked as a traveling salesman. He registered for the draft for World War II, but did not see combat as he was then over 50-years-old.
